Adolescence is an important developmental period often associated with exploration and experimentation through which youth test their boundaries within society (Reio, 2010; Steinberg, 2008). While risky behaviors in adolescence are common, spanning across race and socioeconomic status, disparities in the prevalence and impact of risky behaviors are evident. DeVitis, Linda Irwin-DeVitis. Adolescent Education: A Reader, a stimulating collection of carefully selected essays, provides a cross-disciplinary approach to understanding today's adolescents. The contributors offer hopeful visions for respectful, nurturing, and effective schools where youth are challenged to learn and to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. A must-read for all educators. --Kathleen deMarrais, Professor, University of Georgia.
